Revision of D1298-12b(2017) Standard Test Method for Density, Relative Density, or API Gravity of Crude Petroleum and Liquid Petroleum Products by Hydrometer Method


Update the precision section to have a wax specific statement based on the outcome of ILS 1512.

Precision values currently used by the wax industry do not appear to be suitable. Transparent low-viscosity liquids and opaque liquids seem to be used interchangeably. No evidence suggests wax was evaluated during the creation of the test method and could benefit from a wax specific precision statement.

This work item was originally registered under WK60529 and approved in 2017.
